PC lab in remote leper colony had wrong cables, no licences, and not much hope


A while ago, I visited a school in the mountains of Uganda. There was a bunch of fairly new PCs (they had flat screens) and the adult ed class was learning how to run Microsoft Office. I asked them what they were going to use their training for. They had no idea, since there were no office jobs and internet service was slow and expensive.

I left them some Ubuntu disks, haven't gotten any word as to what they did with them.
